Popular Nollywood actress, Joke Silva has come out to give a piece of advice on honesty.

The movie star recently had her say on social media, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to her, people should try as much as possible to not tell lies, because it is far more expensive than saying the truth.

She added that lies will always come back to haunt human beings, so it is best to always avoid it completely.

Her words, “How is your weekend going. Try as much as is humanly possible not to lie about anything. The lie usually comes back to bite you. It’s hard at times to stand under the weight of the truth…. but the lie is insanely expensive. Enjoy your weekend. You deserve it.”

Why do you think?

Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. Due to the history of evolving meanings and contexts, there is no clear or agreed-upon definition for the term, which has made it a subject to several controversies.

The origin of the term “Nollywood” remains unclear; Jonathan Haynes traced the earliest usage of the word to a 2002 article by Matt Steinglass in the New York Times, where it was used to describe Nigerian cinema.

Charles Igwe noted that Norimitsu Onishi also used the name in a September 2002 article he wrote for the New York Times. The term continues to be used in the media to refer to the Nigerian film industry, with its definition later assumed to be a portmanteau of the words “Nigeria” and “Hollywood”, the American major film hub.

Film-making in Nigeria is divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents. However, there is the English-language film industry which is a melting pot for filmmaking and filmmakers from most of the regional industries.
